This podcast was recorded at Largo in front of many wonderful nerds on July 28th and featured the following awesome elements: David Koechner opening the show in character, Fred Willard chatting with us about comedy and Tom Kenny telling a story about the time he met Rodney Dangerfield and then closing the show with a handful of songs AS SPONGEBOB with a full friggin band and EVERYTHING. And have I mentioned FRED WILLARD enough??? Topics: The Nerdist Podcast, Chris Hardwick
Our third "Live @ Largo" show welcomes the amazingly brilliant and charming Craig Ferguson, musician/songstress Sara Watkins, plus surprise guests! Craig talks about his friendship with Peter Cook, explains the socio-political origins of the Daleks, and educates us Americans on the proper use of the "C" word. This episode was mindblowingly fun and I sincerely hope you get a chance to come see one of our live shows. Topics: The Nerdist Podcast, Chris Hardwick

Nick Kroll (The League, Fabrice Fabrice, Bobbie Bottleservice, name rhymes with "Rickroll") got heckled by a grip while auditioning for SNL. He didn't get the job. For this reason, you should feel bad for him and watch his one hour comedy special "Thank You Very Cool," premiering Saturday, January 29th at 10p ET on Comedy Central. Chris, Matt & Jonah were able to suspend a single muon in a makeshift particle accelerator and tear the very fabric of space-time. In the... Topics: The Nerdist Podcast, Chris Hardwick, Nick Kroll
The Sklar Brothers are the only twin comedy team I can think of outside of Cheng & Eng or the Sagal sisters. They hosted "Cheap Seats," wrote/produced/starred in "Back on Topps" (a phenomenal web series) and are currently making podcasts under the "Sklarbro Country" name. Nice guys who are hilarious. WHAT MORE DO YOU VULTURES WANT???!! Oh. Apologies. There was no need for me to yell at you and I'm sorry. But sometimes you just make me so MAD, Baby...What? Ok....

Donald Glover is on "Community" but has so many talents that someday we'll all just be tiny moons orbiting his mega-stardom. Chris fails with his #Hardwick4Hulk campaign and Jonah & Matt write a "Back to the Future" musical. Topics: The Nerdist Podcast, Chris Hardwick, Donald Glover
One of our pals from way back, Dana Dearmond--aka "The Internet's Girlfriend"--is an adult film lady who also happens to be a HUGE gamer and comedy nerd. Not surprisingly we discuss games, comedy and Dana's appearance in the upcoming "Star Trek: The Next Generation" porn parody. Topics: The Nerdist Podcast, Chris Hardwick, Dana Dearmond
BONUS EPISODE! Normally we're a once-a-week operation but somehow we're at a point where we have a few "in the can" as they say in the Entertainment Biz (and I assume the Pornography Biz as well) so I wanted to get these guys on as soon as it was possible. Damian Kulash and Tim Nordwind are super smart, very nice dudes who have made some of the best videos in recent memory through the use of those super-smarts and a willing army of creative fans willing to help out (nerdsourcing). It... Topics: The Nerdist Podcast, Chris Hardwick, OK Go!
